After a tough loss to Dension two weeks ago, the Scots bounced back to win four straight conference games against Ohio Wesleyan and DePauw. Leading the way for Wooster was Ryan Kramer ’26, who went 8-15 last week, good for a .533 average. The torrid stretch at the plate netted the rookie third baseman the NCAC Athlete of the Week award. The Scots dropped a non-conference game on Sunday at home against Heidelberg University but will have the chance to play in the next two competitions against Case Western Reserve University, and the University of Mount Union before taking on Hiram College this weekend at home for conference play. Wooster will finish conference play against Wabash for senior day on Saturday, May 6 before the NCAC tournament gets underway. Congratulations to the Wooster baseball team on their season and to seniors Owen Barnard, Dane Camphausen, Dean Brown, Christian Johnston, Steven Leicht, Ian Leon, Riley McErlean, Ethan Samangy, Hayden Sherry, Ryan Sullivan and Jack Whitehouse on the completion of their college baseball careers!
The Fighting Scots Softball team will travel to Hiram College on Saturday to take on the Terriers in conference play. It will mark Wooster’s last matchup with a conference opponent prior to the NCAC. Wooster, who at the time of this writing, has a 6-4 record in conference play (good for a .600 winning percentage) sits in fourth place in the NCAC standings, trailing DePauw, Denison and Ohio Wesleyan. The doubleheader against Hiram (4-6 in conference play), as well as the doubleheader against the 3-9 Oberlin Yeoman on Wednesday, April 26, should serve as a good opportunity for the Scots to tune up their play and collect some wins against two opponents at the bottom of their conference before tournament play begins next month. The Scots will wrap up their regular season schedule against Case Western Reserve University on Saturday, May 6. Congratulations to the Wooster softball team on a great season and seniors Stacey Harris, Kylie Schmitz and Addie Tagg on the completion of their college softball careers!
The College of Wooster men’s lacrosse team currently sits in fourth place in the NCAC. After starting their season with 11 consecutive victories, the men’s team dropped three of their last four games against all the conference opponents. Despite the recent bumps, the Scots are well-positioned to put up a valiant fight within their conference tournament. With just two games remaining on Thursday, April 27 and Saturday, April 29 they’ll have an opportunity to cement their success within conference play. The Scots possess a 12-3 overall record (.800) and a 3-3 conference record (.500) and Thursday’s game will be especially pivotal for the Scot’s conference fate as they trail Dension (second place 4-1). The NCAC tournament will get underway on Wednesday, May 3. Congratulations to the Scots’ men’s lacrosse team on a wonderful season and congratulations to seniors: Teddy Berner, Max Fletcher, Joey Harris, Tucker Joseph, Adam Meyer, Atticus Moats, Mason Poisson and Ryan You on the completion of their college lacrosse careers!
The College of Wooster women’s lacrosse team possesses an astounding .714 winning percentage in overall play with a 10-4 record the Scots have had a successful season. They’ve struggled to find the same mojo in conference competition, with a 1-3 record with their sole win coming against the last place Wittenberg Tigers. Wooster sits in fifth place behind Kenyon, Dension, Ohio Wesleyan and DePauw, but they will have two more opportunities to assert themselves in conference play with games against Ohio Wesleyan (3-2) on Wednesday, April 26 and Oberlin (1-3) on Saturday, April 29. The Oberlin game especially will be a key test for the Scots as they are deadlocked with the Yeoman in the conference standings, and a win would be helpful for tournament seeding. The NCAC tournament will get underway on Wednesday, May 3. Congratulations to the Scots women’s lacrosse team on a wonderful season. Congratulations to seniors: Clare Leithauser, Jill Murray, Hannah Shaw, Britta Treu and Anna Truong on the completion of their college lacrosse careers!
